Working out a new one - almost Pau (finished)


I've almost finished a new one.  Love the Reds!  Added a transparent oxide red to my limited palette - makes for much richer darks with the phthalo blue...

Try it - Permanent Red, Cad Yellow Light, Phthalo Blue, Transparent Oxide Red and a white of your choice.  It really helps to premix secondaries and the key colors of your subject.  I also mix a yellow ochre, cad yellow deep, browns and a "black" etc...

For this painting I did add a cadmium scarlet - when it's posted in a few days you'll see why -
